Health benefits of lamb
As a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and high-quality proteins, lamb can be an excellent component of a healthy diet.
Meat is one of the best dietary sources of high-quality protein.
In fact, it contains all nine amino acids you need and is referred to as a complete protein.
High-quality protein is very important for maintaining muscle mass — especially in older adults.
Inadequate protein intake may accelerate and worsen age-related muscle wasting. This increases your risk of sarcopenia, an adverse condition associated with very low muscle mass.
In the context of a healthy lifestyle and adequate exercise, regular consumption of lamb — or other high-protein foods — may help preserve muscle mass.
Improved physical performance
Lamb not only helps preserve muscle mass but may also be important for muscle function.
It contains the amino acid beta-alanine, which your body uses to produce carnosine, a substance necessary for muscle function.
Beta-alanine is found in high amounts in meat, such as lamb, beef, and pork.
High levels of carnosine in human muscles have been associated with decreased fatigue and improved exercise performance.
Diets low in beta-alanine — such as vegetarian and vegan diets — may decrease levels of carnosine in your muscles over time.
On the other hand, taking high doses of beta-alanine supplements for 4–10 weeks has been shown to cause a 40–80% increase in the amount of carnosine in muscles.
Therefore, regular consumption of lamb — or other foods rich in beta-alanine — may benefit athletes and those who want to optimize their physical performance.
